1 . Basic aspects of repair 

1.1 General 

Weapons in need of repair are normally detected during the course of routine examination, musters or 

parades and during technical and practical service use. 

Unserviceable weapons are to be repaired by the authorized armament personnel without delay. 

1 .2 Repair 

When the action of a weapon is faulty or it provides poor shooting results, it must first be examined to deter- 
mine the cause of the un serviceability. 

The armament personnel carrying out repairs must be well instructed on the weapon concerned. They 
must be fully conversant with the following: 

1 . Construction of the weapon and the actions. 

2. Purpose, stress and the limits of acceptable wear on the individual components. 

3. The use of related gauges and testing equipment. 

4. The correct procedure for systematic examination of the weapon. 

Replacement parts are only to be incorporated if, after elimination of all other faults, the weapon cannot be 
brought up to the required condition. 

1 .3 Special notes on the treatment of pistols 

Pistols and magazines are to be lightly oiled, and the receiver tracks lightly greased. Ammunition may be 
oiled. Wherever possible, the magazine is to be cleaned weekly, emptied and refilled, at the same time 
examining it carefully for distortion such as buckling and bending. Buckled and corroded cartridges disco- 
vered in the course of cleaning are to be removed. After the magazine has been filled, the topmost round 
must be pressed down several times and then allowed to rise again so as to ensure that the remaining 
rounds are correctly positioned in the magazine. 

Whilst carrying out this action, ensure that the rounds do not jam in the magazine. The pistol holster pro- 
vides no protection for the weapon and magazine against damage resulting from abrupt changes in 
temperature. 



2. Description of maintenance work 
2.1 General 

The user to whom the weapon is issued is fully responsible for cleaning, general care and the condition of 
the pistol. Damage and unserviceabilities are to be immediately reported to the responsible armament 
personnel. Cleaning is divided into the following categories to be carried out as shown: 

Normal cleaning 

- At regular intervals when the weapon is not in use. 

- After each period of use for which major cleaning is not required. 

Major cleaning 

- Each time the pistol has been fired. 

- If the pistol has become wet or particularly dirty. 

Each time the pistol is cleaned and subsequently reassembled it must be examined for its condition and 
perfect functioning. 

The following items are to be used for cleaning and general maintenance ot the pistol: 

- Cleaning kit, calibre 7.62 to 9 mm 

- Clean pull-throughs and cleaning cloths 

- Chlorine-free and acid-free gun oil and gun grease 

- Piece ot wood, if needed.

Fig. 1 Cleaning kit 



It is forbidden to use any of Ihe following items to clean the pistol: 

- Metal implements 

Nylon, perlon or other synthetic fibres 

- Chemicals e. g., petroleum ether etc. 

- Hot or cold water 

2.2 Normal cleaning 

Normal cleaning must be carried out each time the pistol is used. In this case the pistol must be stripped 
only to the extent necessitated by the amount of dirt accumulated (see Section 3.2). 

The dirty components must be cleaned and oiled using a clean cloth. 

2.2.1 Barrel 

- Clean the chamber and interior of the barrel with a pullthrough, and subsequently lightly oil. 

- Clean and lightly oil the slide. 

2.2.2 Slide 

- Use the cleaning brush or cloth to clean it out, lightly oil. 

2.2.3 Bolt head 

- Clean the dismounted bolt head together with the internal tracks, and lightly oil. 

- The locking rollers must be caused to move slightly when the bolt head is shaken. 

Note: 

Before inserting the bolt head into the slide, allow a few drops of gun oil to drip into the recess square. 

2.2.4 Receiver 

- Use the cleaning brush or cloths to clean the receiver, removing any dirt from the entrance to the 
chamber. 

- Lightly oil. 



6 



2.2.5 Magazine 

- Remove accumulations of dirt from the magazine lips and from the follower. 

- Lightly oil. 

Varying amounts of contamination can accumulate inside the pistol, depending on the number of shots 
fired and the nature of the propellant charge. It is thus recommended to carry out major cleaning of the 
pistol after a certanin period of use although no interval can be specified. 

2.3 Major cleaning 

- Strip the pistol first removing the magazine, detach the slide, and take out the barrel and bolt head (see 
Section 3.2, or brief description ..Stripping and cleaning" of P9S). 

2.3.1 Barrel 

- Draw an oil-soaked cleaning brush through the barrel from chamber to muzzle with the cleaning chain 
(if possible, this should be done for the first time immediately after firing, and while the barrel is still 
warm to the touch). 

- Allow the gun oil to take effect for several hours. 

- Afterwards again draw the oil-soaked brush through the barrel. 

- Subsequently draw a dry pull-through down the barrel; it must remain clean. 

- Lightly oil the barrel. 

- Clean and lightly oil the locking system. 

Note: 

Each time that the weapon is fired, the process of cleaning and oiling the barrel must be repeated on the 
three consecutive days following use. 

2.3.2 Slide 

- Wash in paraffin (kerosene) pushing the firing pin forwards and cleaning it. 

- Wipe the slide and lightly oil it. 

2.3.3 Bort head 

- Place in paraffin and use the brush to remove powder deposits, at the same time moving the extractor. 

- Use wooden chips to thoroughly clean the internal tracks in the bolt head as well as the locking roller 
bearings. 

- Wipe the bolt head and lightly oil it. 

Note: 

Before inserting the bolt head into the slide, allow a few drops of gun oil to drip into the recess square. 

2.3.4 Receiver 

- Undo the moulded grip and wash out the receiver with paraffin, wipe dry and lightly oil. 

- Lightly smear both guide grooves for the slide with gun grease. 

2.3.5 Magazine 

- Where contamination is heavy, strip the magazine (see Section 3.4) and wash out with paraffin, wipe 
dry and lightly oil the individual components. 



3 Stripping and reassembling the pistol 
3.1 General 

The pistol is stripped for cleaning. It several pistols are being cleaned simultaneously in the same place, 
then care must be taken to ensure that the parts are not inadvertantly interchanged. 

Before stripping the pistol, the safety catch must be applied and the weapon examined to prove 
that the magazine Is empty and that there is no round left in the chamber. 

No tools are required for stripping or reassembling the pistol. 
The use of force is absolutely prohibited. 



3.2 Stripping the pistol 

Remove the magazine (Fig. 2).

- Take off the slide by pressing the barrel clamp 
in the trigger guard forwards (Fig. 3). 

- Push the slide forwards to the stop and lift it off 
upwards. 






Fig. 3 







- Remove the barrel by pushing it forwards 
against the pressure of the spring until it can 
be lifted rearwards and upwards out of the 
slide (Fig. 4). 



Fig. 4 













To extract the bolt head, use one shank end 
of the barrel extension to press down between 
the bolt head and the slide onto the locking 
catch, until the bolt head springs forward 
(Fig. 5). 
— Remove the bolt head from the slide. 

Fig. 5 










It is not necessary to strip the pistol any further for major cleaning. 

3.3 Reassembling the pistol 

When inserting the bolt head, position it with its rectangular opening over the locking piece (extractor to 
ejection port) and. as when extracting the bolt head, press down the locking catch with one shank of the 
barrel extension, at the same time sliding the bolt head further back until it engages. 



Push the barrel complete with recoil spring (larger 
diameter end of the spring to the front) at an angle 
through the barrel hole in the slide against the 
pressure of the spring (Fig. 6). Then position it 
fully into the slide, allowing it to move back until 
the locking rollers engage.

Mount the slide onto the receiver so that the front 
guide lugs can engage in the corresponding not- 
ches in the receiver body. Press the slide down 
onto the top of the receiver, draw it to the rear and 
then allow it to travel rapidly forward (Fig. 7). Un- 
cock the pistol, and insert the magazine.

3.4 Stripping and reassembling the magazine 

- With the aid ot a drift, press down the lug in the 
floor plate of the magazine and slide the relea- 
sed plate off (Fig. 8). 

- Remove the spring locating piece, follower 
spring and follower from the magazine housing 
(parts are under spring pressure).

3.6 Checks 

Before returning a pistol to the armoury for repair, trie following points must be checked: 

(1) Cleanliness 

(2) Examine front, rear sights and grip for firm attachment 

(3) Examine the subassemblies for deposits of dirt, for damage and for function 

(4) Examine the complete pistol for accumulations of dirt, for damage and for dents 

(5) Check functioning of the fully assembled pistol 

(6) Check functioning and condition of the magazine 

3.6.1 Slide (Exploded diagram 1 ) 
Bolt head 

- The extractor must lift freely and return to its initial position. 

- The locking rollers must move freely when the bolt is shaken. 

Bolt head carrier 

- The locking catch (16) must move freely when pressed down. 

- It must be possible to push the pressure pin (13) down to the stop and for it to return under spring 
pressure. 

- The catch bolt (9) must be adjusted by moving the set screw (11) so as to allow unrestricted engagement 
and changeover of the safety catch. 



11 



Barrel with barrel extension 

- The play between the barrel with the barrel extension (4) and the barrel clamp must be maintained as 
low as possible. A new barrel clamp must be fitted if the play becomes excessive. 

Slide, complete 

- The safety lever must engage positively in both its end positions. Adjust on the set screw (11), if neces- 
sary. 

- With the safety catch released, it must be possible to push the firing pin (18) forward and for it to return 
unhindered under spring pressure. In the safed condition the firing pin must not protrude beyond the 
safety catch (3) to the rear, and be restricted to approx. 0.2 mm play at the front end. 



3.6.2 Receiver, complete (Exploded diagram 2) 

- In the uncocked condition, the trigger (4) must travel so far to the rear that the pull bar (18) engages be- 
hind the intermediate lever (30) carrying it with it when it travels forwards. 

- The double action trigger must move back smoothly. It must be possible to draw back the hammer (20) 
against spring pressure to the upper edge of the disconnector (22); the hammer must not catch in the 
notch during the counter recoil action. 

(If the hammer responds prematurely, then the intermediate lever (30) and/or the pull-bar must be 
exchanged). 

- Movement of the trigger must be unrestricted and it must not catch at the limit of its travel. 

The trigger force for normal action (single) must not be less than 1 .4 kg (if necessary, exchange the 
catch lever (17) and the hammer (20). 

With a full magazine loaded into the pistol, the trigger bar (19) must drop in perfectly behind the catch 
lever and cany it with it (receiver possibly too narrow, i. e., sides pressed together). 

- When uncocking the pistol correctly, the hammer must be retained by the notch. 

- The catch (2) must be positively lifted when an empty magazine is inserted. 

- The magazine catch (25) must retain the magazine securely. When engaged, the magazine must have 
a minimum of 0.2 mm play along its lengthwise axis. The magazine must spring slightly out when the 
magazine catch is operated. (This action can be inhibited if the sides of the magazine well have been 
pressed together, or if the magazine itself is distorted). 

- It must be possible to press down the cocking lever (27) (both with and without a filled magazine) so far 
that the hammer engages positively. (Grip must be in position). 

- Use of the cocking lever must allow the catch to be pushed upwards through its full travel so that on 
release it falls back into its original position. 

- The axle for hammer must be correctly located in the slot provided for the purpose. 

- In the assembled condition it must be possible to push the buffer housing (13) to the rear stop, and for it 
to return to the front stop under its own power. 



3.6.3 Magazine, complete (Exploded diagram 4) 

The magazine must accommodate a total of 9 rounds. 
- The movement of the follower (3) must be unrestricted. 



3.7 Functional testing of the pistol 

- The slide must move without any restriction on the receiver. 

- During the loading action the slide must feed and eject the rounds perfectly. 

- With an empty magazine fitted, the slide must be retained perfectly by the latch when the slide is drawn 
back to the buffer stop. The cocking action must release the slide properly. 

- After removing the magazine, the catch must disengage when the slide is drawn back, and must not hold 
the slide during the subsequent loading actions. 

- The hammer must engage when the slide is drawn back. When it is engaged (hammer cocked), the 
indicator pin must be both seen and felt to project.

4.3.2 Checking the individual components 

Having completed cleaning, and before incorporating new individual components and reassembling the 
slide, all parts are to be examined for impact marks (distortion), the formation ot burrs, heavily worn posi- 
tions and for crack formation. If serious faults are detected, then the parts concerned must be replaced. 

The following components are to be subjected to special examination: 

Slide (1) 

- Check for firm seating of the front sight (2) and the rear sight. A loose front sight blade must be replaced 
with a new one. If necessary, re-rivet the rear sight on the hollow rivets (visible from within). 

- The slide must be carefully examined for any cracks - above all. on the side surfaces in the region of 
the locking system and around the ejection port. 

- Brazed insert and stop pieces in the slide body must be examined for tight fit. 

- The notch must not show any signs of wear or other damage. 

- Guide rail surfaces must remain straight. The dimension between the rails must not exceed 17.6 mm 
(paying due regard to the sliding action on the receiver). 

Safety catch (3) 

The retainer edge for the firing pin and the edge of the notch depression (safety action too smooth) must 
not display any signs of excessive wear. 



Barrel with barrel extension (4) and recoil spring (5) 

- The calibre must not be in excess of dia. 8.76 mm. 

- There must be no major damage present inside the barrel, and particularly not in the chamber. Minor 

scratches and damage are of no significance. 

- The barrel extension should be examined for cracks, especially in the region of the locking recess and 

the transition into the pronged section. 

Recoil spring (5) 

The minimum length of the uncompressed recoil spring must be at least 130 mm. 

Bolt head (6) 

- Examine the bolt head for cracks and other damage. 

- Using a wedge, it must not be possible to force the sliding rollers any further than 16.6 mm apart. 
The rollers must not be caused to jam as a result of this action; they must release under their own centri- 
fugal force (swing the bolt head backwards and forwards). 

- If the above requirement is not met, the bolt head must be renewed. 

- The thrusting edge for the locking catch must not be distorted. 

- The claws on the extractor must not exhibit any signs of damage or wear; the rear leg of the spring must 

not be distorted. 

- The uncompressed extractor spring must have a minimum length of 6.8 mm. 

Bolt head carrier (7) 

- There must be no signs of wear or burring on the guide surfaces of the bolt head carrier. 

- The bolt head must have unrestricted sliding movement on the bolt head carrier. 

Locking catch (15) 

- The locking catch must be examined for cracks; the thrusting edge on the locking catch must not 
be worn or distorted. 

Compression spring (14) 

- The uncompressed compression spring must have a length of at least 7.00 mm. 



16 



Firing pin (17) 

- The hooked rear end of the firing pin (17) must be free from wear or damage. 

- The tip of the firing pin must be free from any signs of erosion. 

Compression spring for firing pin (18) 

The firing pin compression spring must be undistorted and have a minimum length of 18.5 mm when 
uncompressed. 



Note: 

Damage to the firing pin is frequently caused by incorrect dry training and frequent dry snapping with the 
pistol put at safe. 

Caution: 

Dry firing practice is only to be carried out with the safety catch released! 



4.3.3 Reassembling the slide 

The bolt head carrier is reassembled in the reverse order of stripping. 



Insert the bolt head carrier into the slide, drive 
it slightly to the rear with a copper mandrel 
dia. 15 mm, and introduce the firing pin com- 
plete with compression spring (Fig. 15). 



Fig. 15 




Using the copper mandrel, drive the bolt head 
carrier to the rear until the drill holes in the bolt 
head carrier and those in the slide are aligned. 
Insert the safety catch, push the firing pin fully 

forward ensuring that the nose on the end of 
the firing pin is visible (Fig. 16).

- Without resorting to force, push the grip onto the receiver as far as it will go. 

- Screw the grip firmly to the receiver with lens head countersunk screws - the shorter screw 
(its into the upper of the two holes in the rear of the grip. 

Note: 

If the moulded grip is properly fitted, then the catch must lie against it. 

4.5 Assembling the pistol 

- The barrel clamp must be fully engaged when tilting the slide to the receiver. 

- Insert the magazine. 

Carry out functional testing in accordance with Section 4.7. 



4.6 Correction of sight alignment 

Corrections to the alignment of the sights are to be confined to the front sight only. Front sights of various 
heights are available for this purpose. 



(1 ) Changing the front sight 

Remove the barrel and bolt head from the slide. 
- Using a drift, drive out the front sight from right 
to left. (Fig. 52). 



Fig. 52 




- Determine the height of the front sight needed - the size is stamped into the base of each sight. 

— Depending on the point of impact, drive the new sight blade in from the left or right relative to the centre 
line of the slide. 



31 



(2) Elevation corrections 

Point of impact too low: 

- Insert a shorter front sight. 

Point of impact too high: 

- Insert a taller front sight. 

(3) Lateral corrections 

Lateral corrections to sight alignment can only be carried out by displacing the front sight. 

The displacement of the sight relative to the central axis of the slide must not exceed 1 mm. 

- A 0.1 mm displacement of the front sight results in a shift of approx. 17 mm in the point of impact over a 
range of 25 metres (27.3 yds). 

Point of impact too far left: 

- Move the front sight to the left. 

Point of impact too far right: 

- Move the front sight to the right. 

The sight alignment is checked by firing the P9S pistol over a range of 25 metres (27.3 yds) in accordance 
with the details on the target illustrated at Fig. 53. 

Note: 

Point ol aim - point of impact (see triangle on the target's outer 7 ring.

4.7 Conduct of tests after repair 

4.7.1 Gap between bolt head and bolt head carrier 

(1 ) The gap between bolt head and bolt head carrier Is measured with the aid of a 0.15 mm feeler gauge. 

- Remove the slide. 

- Measure the gap between bolt head and boll head carrier with the feeler gauge. 

Note: 

When closed, the gap between bolt head and bolt head carrier must not be less than 0.15 mm; the result of 

wear is invariably a decrease in the gap. 

Powder and other deposits can cause the gap between bolt head and bolt head carrier to increase. 

(2) Correction of the gap between bolt head and bolt head carrier. 

A below-limits gap between bolt head and bolt head carriercan be rectified by exchanging the bolt head, 
boit head carrier or the barrel complete with the barrel extension. 

4.7.2 Functional testing 

- Fully load the magazine with dummy training rounds and insert it into the receiver. 

- Check the security of attachment in the magazine well. 

- Put the pistol on „safe" 

- Draw the slide back to the stop several times allowing It to snap forward each time. This action must 
cause all the dummy rounds to be fed, extracted and ejected perfectly. 

The indicator pin must show whether the weapon is loaded and the slide must be held on the catch after 
the last cartridge has been ejected. 

- Operate the magazine catch; it must be possible to remove the magazine unhindered. 

- When the slide Is drawn back, the cocking lever must allow the catch to engage perfectly and lock the 
slide with the catch lever. 

4.7.3 Cocking and trigger action 

- Release the safety catch. 

- Operate the trigger with the hammer uncocked, in so doing the hammer must move to the rear and 
automatically snap forwards when the trigger Is squeezed through. 

- Tension the hammer with the cocking lever; the indicator pin must visibly protrude from the drill hole. 
Squeeze the trigger until the pressure point is reached; the hammer must not operate. 

- With the hammer cocked, the trigger force must lie between 1.4 and 1.8 kg - and approx. 4.5 kg using 
the double action trigger. 

- Press the cocking lever downwards and hold it In this position, squeeze the trigger and maintain it in the 
rearmost position, allow the cocking lever to move slowly upwards. 

- Release the pressure on the trigger, the pistol must be uncocked (the hammer is held on the retention 
notch) and the trigger must not catch. 

- Press the cocking lever fully down, the pistol must now be fully cocked and the indicator pin visible. 

- Squeeze the trigger and hold it in the rearmost position, pull back the slide and allow it to ease forward; 
the hammer must thereby remain cocked. 

- Actuating the hammer again should be possible only after releasing the trigger. 

4.7.4 Safety devices 

(1 ) Safety of the weapon 

- The safety lever must move unrestrictedly and engage positively in both positions. 

- Release the safety catch. 

- Cock the hammer. 

- Squeeze the trigger; the hammer must now snap forward. 

- Apply the safety catch. 

- Cock the hammer. 

- Squeeze the trigger; the hammer moves forward and is checked by the safety axle {use an emptied 
cartridge to test this action - the primer must not be detonated). 



(2) Safety of the shooter 

- Apply the safety catch. 

- Cock the hammer. 

- With the slide, draw the bolt head approx. 1 mm to the rear. 

- Squeeze the trigger; it must pull through off-load without operating the hammer.
